Episode #042 - Own Your Om | The Immediate Benefits of Meditation


With the hustle and bustle of your daily life, it's critical that you carve out time for self-care. One of the easiest and most effective things you can do is meditate.

While it's often seen as a religious act, meditation is nothing more than a focused practice of mindfulness and calm. Having practiced meditation for over 15 years, I can sense the times where I practice more regularly vs. not. The events in my life also skew more positive, rewarding and challenges seem less daunting.

Add in the fact that it's proven to benefit your health by reducing mortality by 50%, lowering your heart rate and reducing stress, there's no reason not to give it a shot.

In this episode I'll share how it's impacted my life and how I've helped hundreds of others realize the benefit of including 30 minutes of meditation a day into your life.

There are numerous apps that can also help you get started and stay consistent with your meditation including Calm, Headspace and Meditation Studio. 

I also discuss sharing my personal meditation playlist, which will be growing, so please follow it below.
